AML3D Ltd. announced the sale recently of a large-scale, industrial ARCEMY ‘X-Edition 6700’ metal 3D printing system to the Navy.

The sale supports the Navy’s adoption of wire arc additive manufacturing technology. Wire arc additive manufacturing as a means to produce on-demand industrial grade parts is critical to rapidly scaling the parts supply to the Navy’s submarine industrial base, AML3D said. The ARCEMY order was placed by BlueForge Alliance, a Department of Defense intermediary that supports the acceleration of advanced manufacturing technologies across the U.S. defense industrial base.

The sale of the ARCEMY ‘X-Edition 6700’, AML3D’s largest ARCEMY system, is valued at approximately $698,000.

AML3D expects a further expansion strategic partnership with the Navy with an additional contract for metal characterization testing using ARCEMY systems for the provision of parts to the industrial base, expected in the third quarter.

The ARCEMY system will be located at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, the Department of Energy's largest science and energy laboratory. 

"AML3D is excited to be supporting the Navy’s submarine industrial base programs for the adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies with an ARCEMY ‘X-Edition 6700’ system, our large-scale, industrial purpose solution," AML3D CEO Ryan Millar said. "This sale is a significant opportunity for AML3D, as it is part of a long-term strategic partnership with the Navy helping them scale up submarine production with advanced additive manufacturing technology."
